Of course it's possible. As already mentioned on this thread  
Class::Std implements a solution to the problem too. The point is  
that there's no *standard* way to percolate unhandled AUTOLOADs up  
the inheritance chain. If you allow for the possibility of multiple  
inheritance it's not entirely trivial to do either.
